The contemporary house plan, Calypso, is a stylish and functional design for a beach house or vacation home retreat. The blocked pattern of horizontal, vertical, and stone siding with glass panel balcony railing gives the Calypso its contemporary style that is sure to impress.
The front door opens to a foyer landing of a split-level entry. To the left is a large walk-in closet for outdoor gear storage. Going up the stairs leads to the main level. The open concept living means it has a great space for entertaining and gathering without excluding anybody in the kitchen. The living room has a relaxing wood stove to bring warmth to the space. The living room seamlessly flows into a dining area and the kitchen. The kitchen is designated with an island and a raised eating bar. The island also has the kitchen sink and extra workspace for preparing meals.
The main level also has two bedrooms on the side of the house. One room is a bit larger so it could function as a master bedroom or a bunk room. The main level bath is a full bath with a separate tub and shower.
Back at the front door, choosing to go downstairs will lead to the daylight basement. As it is designed now, the basement is mostly unfinished space. The laundry room resides at the bottom of the stairs and is a pass-through to a large, open space. This space could be used as a workshop or gaming area. In the future, it could also be finished by adding a bathroom and some more walls to create additional bedrooms or a family room. This level also has access to the garage. The garage is entered at the rear of the house and could be used as a regular garage or as toy storage.
